MANCHESTER UNITED fans got their first glimpse of what Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes will look like in tandem.
And the prospect of facing ‘Brogba’ must have ex-United chief Jose Mourinho worried ahead of Tottenham’s clash with the Red Devils next week.
United supporters will be licking their lips as the Pogba-Fernandes axis looks full of goals and assists.
The pair looked a huge threat in their action during the 60-minute friendly matches against West Brom last night.
Behind a pacy frontline of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, Spurs will have their work cut out when they host Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer’s men when the Premier League restarts.
United take on Tottenham on Friday June 19.
Pogba’s wonderful pass from the left wing was like a missile as it went straight to Fernandes’ right boot.
It would have been a sensational goal as the Portuguese hit it first time.
But he sliced it into the right side of the netting, agonisingly missing by inches.
Fernandes then signalled his appreciation of the Frenchman’s killer pass, which completely bypassed the Baggies defence.
United are unbeaten in 11 matches since the arrival of the £55million midfielder from Sporting Lisbon.
United boss Solskjaer has signalled his intention to play the two together in front of a holding midfielder.
And if he can hang on to Pogba this summer, the pair could form a devastating partnership next season.
Pogba has spent much of this season on the sidelines.
He was injured in September, then underwent an ankle operation in January.
But he looks back to his very best now.
United were only really in second gear as they lost the first match 2-1 but won the second game 3-1 against Slaven Bilic’s Championship title hopefuls.
But they will push through those gears this week to get ready for the big kick-off in six days’ time.
